It was school break this week and we were just at home, so for two days I took the kids down to the Cape to see Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower II.
As always, I am challenged with my editing skills!! Here’s what we have:
–The kids standing in the English Village of Plimoth Plantation. It was just starting to rain and we were some of the only ones there, which was great! We could do whatever we wanted to! We talked to Miles Standish for about 30 minutes and hung out in the homes when it rained. There is also a Wampanoag village there with true Native Americans that were working and building a canoe (picture did not come out) that fascinated my son!
— 1620 marks Plimoth Rock!
— Here are the kids with the Mayflower II in the background and then on board. In true “Nolan” fashion, I get us everywhere at the start of the day when it opens — much less busy. We were the only ones on the Mayflower for a bit and could interact freely with the folks there.
–My kids asked me to include this “Moo-flower” cow statue from the visitors’ center since they thought it was hysterical!
Plymouth is only 75 miles from us, but we stayed the night to make it extra fun. The second day we went back to the Plantation to the Wampanoag village again and to see the baby animals in the barns.

What fun! I’ve never been there but it looks like I need to visit sometime.
I hadn’t been since I was a little girl visiting from California — in 1974!
We visited this area many years ago when our son was 11 or 12 years old. (He’s grown now with a daughter of his own.) We were all fascinated! I think it’s time to go back. Thank you for sharing your photos.
I hadn’t been in 40 years — though I now live nearby. Some things were exactly the same as when I was a little girl. 🙂
I once took a tour of Cape Cod during the fall, when I was in Boston for a business trip. I still recall the wonder of it all…and I didn’t see half of what was there to enjoy. Thanks for sharing.
Here’s MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST
There’s so much wonderful history in this area — I love living here!!
I had to check the spelling. I didn’t know that there was a Plimoth Plantation spelled differently Plymouth Rock. There is. Interesting.
Anne@My Head is Full of Books
Yes – they call the town “Plymouth” — and the historical sites “Plimoth” to differentiate a bit. 🙂
Would love to visit Plymouth. One of my step granddaughter has accepted a job in Boston, Maybe that will be a reason to visit the East Coast. Thanks for sharing, and prompting my vacation planning. 🙂
Fun and educational! I would love to visit someday.
Here’s my SNAPSHOT.
I love it there! We try to visit every few years and spread our visits across the seasons … I dream of being one of the historical interpreters … what a fun job that would be!
Your kids are quite right- that Mooflower statue is hysterical! Looks like a fun trip.
